The City of Chelsea is located in north central Shelby County approximately 10 miles Southeast of Birmingham along the U.S. Hwy 280 corridor. It is part of the Birmingham metropolitan area, meaning the hustle and bustle of a big city is close enough if you desire.

Chelsea is widely considered the fastest growing city in Shelby County, having extensive growth potential for both continued residential development and commercial development opportunities.

The up and coming area of Chelsea offers a combination of excellent schools and a close knit community, meaning the decision to plant roots in a new location has never seemed easier. The city's slogan states "It's All About Family," paying tribute to the core values the community possesses.

Chelsea continues to be on the cusp of some tremendous development plans, ensuring that everything needed is easily accessible to local residents. The bright future ahead for the Chelsea community is an exciting proposition.

Although The Highlands has a Chelsea address, the development is divided into two sections. Each section falls under a different jurisdiction; however, the municipalities have a mutual aid agreement. Holland Homes is excited to have lots at the East entrance, next to the Morningstar UMC Church, therefore the following jurisdiction applies to homes at this entrance of The Highlands:

  • City/County government: City of Chelsea, Shelby County
  • Police Jurisdiction: Chelsea Police Department, Shelby County Sheriff's Department
  • Fire District: Station #31 | 160 Chesser Drive | Chelsea, AL 35043
